People remember the flowers. How could they not? Guests stare at them the whole night.
When you're looking for a florist, view their portfolios and see how all the different elements of the wedding come together. The bride's bouquet and groom's boutonniere should complement each other. The bridal party's blooms should coordinate too. Look to see if the decor in the room makes sense...do the colors work well with the look of the room? Is there a flow from one part of the wedding to the next?
If you're getting hitched in the Chicago area take a look at Blumen Design. Owner Amy Crum has created breathtaking looks from contemporary to romantic to traditional. Each look she designs fits together, creating an overall look reflecting each couple's taste and personality.
Wedding Tip - When talking to florists, find out which flowers are in season on your wedding day. By using seasonal flowers you can save money on import costs.
